Standard Process Canine Thyroid Support | Hormone Balance For Dogs

By Dr. Candy Akers

Thyroid hormones are vitally important and play a critical role in metabolism, growth, and the immune system. Natural supplements have been used extensively to improve the overall health of our pets. I use them for both cats and dogs in my practice, and even use them for one of my own dogs. I love showing people how to use whole food-based nutritional supplements and how to see incredible results in just a few months

A note about thyroid medications: Some dogs that face thyroid issues have already been placed on artificial hormone replacement pills. Dogs that are receiving this type of medication DO still benefit from a natural thyroid support supplement. Adding a supplement below can preserve future gland tissue, improve blood test values, improve energy levels, and help keep your dog at a healthy body weight. (Please do not quit giving your dog medication if they are already on a protocol. Just add in the supplement and go to your vet for regular checkups and blood tests. Then consult with your vet about changing doses of artificial hormones.)

The following information is a summary and review based on Dr. Candy’s professional experience and recommendations. Any summary or statement has not been provided nor influenced by the manufacturer.

Dr. Candy And Other Holistic Veterinarians Use Canine Thyroid Support For: 

  • Balances multiple hormone systems
  • Increased energy and metabolism (if needed)
  • Weight loss (if needed)
  • Improved mood
  • Modulates your pet’s own thyroid hormone manufacturing 
  • Faster physical recovery, especially skin and muscles
  • May help neutralize auto-immune component of thyroid disease
  • Packed with whole complex vitamins and minerals
  • Thicker hair coat and decreased shedding
  • Outstanding source of complete vitamins the way nature intended
  • Easier to absorb natural forms of vitamins and minerals

Canine Thyroid Support Benefits

  • Hypothyroidism (mostly dogs)
  • Severe stress and anxiety
  • Hyperthyroidism (mostly cats)
  • Thyroid gland hyperplasia
  • Post thyroidectomy 

DR. CANDY'S PRO-TIP:I use Standard Process Canine Thyroid Support in most of my thyroid cases. It helps in cases of high thyroid (mostly cats) and low thyroid (mostly dogs). This supplement does not stimulate or suppress thyroid hormone production, it only helps to heal the glandular tissue and balance what your pet needs. 

More About Canine Thyroid System Support

The endocrine system has an interesting web of interactions with different organs in the body, and the thyroid gland plays a major role.

Canine Thyroid System Support is formulated to:

  • Provides critical trace nutrient support for the thyroid gland*
  • Supports glands and tissues that interact with the thyroid, including the adrenals and liver
  • Supports all aspects of thyroid function*

Indications for Use: 

  • General thyroid support
  • Patients with increased metabolic demand

How to Administer

Dose Schedule: Based on body weight, the canine patient should receive the canine formula powder according to the following recommendations, or as otherwise directed.


Special Information:

A 1/8 tsp scoop is included with the small canine powder bottles, and a 1/2 tsp scoop is included with the large canine powder bottles.

Since these supplements are made from super foods, they are very "rich". This allows us to use small doses, but sometimes when adding a brand new savory food pets can experience a soft stool for 12-24 hours. This situation balances itself but I have found that using a gradual taper greatly reduces the chance of loose stool. 

Caution: This product is processed in a facility that manufactures other products containing soy, milk, egg, wheat, peanut, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish.

Please consult the actual product label for the most accurate product information.

Ingredients: Each Serving Size (1/8 tsp. or 1/2 tsp.) contains: Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), bovine liver, bovine orchic extract, bovine adrenal, bovine thyroid PMG™ extract (processed to substantially remove its thyroxine), green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) (shellfish), Spanish moss (Tillandsia usneoides), calcium lactate, bovine adrenal PMG™ extract, sunflower lecithin, porcine ovary PMG™ extract, organic shiitake mushroom powder, organic reishi mushroom powder, organic buckwheat (aerial parts) juice powder, organic buckwheat flour, kelp, wheat germ oil, bovine bone, rice bran, organic pea vine juice powder, defatted wheat germ, organic alfalfa (aerial parts) juice powder, bovine heart PMG™ extract, ribonucleic acid, porcine duodenum, oat flour, porcine brain, calcium glycerophosphate, and ascorbic acid.

My middle aged and spayed Boston Terrier was showing a small decline in thyroid performance so my vet suggested this supplement. Latest blood test shows good levels now.

I have been giving this to my dog Jack for 3 weeks now......AMAZING! Jack has hypothyroidism and had all the typical symptoms, lethargic, muscle/joint pain, dull brittle hair, and severe hair Los on his hind end and tail. It's a miracle! His hair is growing back in (yes, that quick). His hair is looking healthier, and he is even trotting around with a happy dog look on his face! This product is well worth the cost

This product was recommended to me by my holistic vet for my Papillon who has Hashimoto's disease. I have been using it for about four years, she is 13 years old and acts like a puppy. I would definitely recommend it before trying medications.

Questions & Answers

What are the side effects of Canine Thyroid Support?

Since these nutritional supplements are made from food, there is little to no risk of side effects. The only side effect I’ve ever seen is diarrhea if the pet gets a gigantic dose. For example, if a pet eats a whole bottle. If I had a dollar for every time one of my pets ate a whole bottle, I’d have a pretty full piggy bank. Since pets love these products so much, we recommend keeping them in a cabinet or someplace that your pet cannot get to.

How much Canine Thyroid Support should my dog take?
  • 1-10 lbs 1/8 teaspoon once per day
  • 11-20 lbs 1/8 teaspoon twice per day
  • 21-40 lbs ¼ teaspoon twice per day
  • 41-60 lbs ½ teaspoon twice per day
  • 61-80 lbs ¾ teaspoon twice per day
  • > 80 lbs 1 teaspoon twice per day
